Home Renovation on a Budget

Nobody says they want to spend all their money renovating a home. Even people with a lot of money to spend on home renovations want to save money.

Those on a tight budget want to save even more money to get the most bang for their buck.

If you’re ready to give your Cypress, TX, home or investment property a facelift but don’t have a lot of financial wiggle room, check out these top budget-friendly renovation ideas. They will transform your property into something you will be proud of without breaking the bank.

BUDGET-FRIENDLY HOME RENOVATIONS IDEAS

New Countertops

Let’s face it: renovating your entire kitchen will cost you a lot of money. A major kitchen renovation project will cost you more than $100,000 on average.

Still, there are ways to change the look of your kitchen without redoing it all. If your appliances, flooring, and cabinets are in good condition, consider upgrading the countertops.

Even though countertops can be expensive, some great options are less expensive, such as:

  • Laminate
  • Paint (yes, this is a real thing!)
  • Concrete
  • Tile
  • Wood

Replace The Cabinets

So, you’ve decided that you can’t neglect your kitchen cabinets, even though you’ve heard that replacing them can cost a lot of money. So, what now?

How about getting some help from a professional design team? Designers can help you along the way whether you know what you want or need help finding the right style and layout.

Our design team has worked with people who had budgets all over the board, and we know how to stay within them. We are experts at replacing kitchen cabinets, and it makes us happy to see how delighted our customers are when we’re done.

Update The Flooring

Okay, those on a tight budget are probably not looking to replace their entire home’s flooring. After all, even with low-cost materials, this would be an expensive project.

However, if you want to upgrade a room or two while saving money, you have several options:

  • Cover up existing flooring with a peel-and-stick option 
  • DIY a floating floor system (in hardwood, laminate, or cork) 
  • Consider vinyl for rooms that are simple squares.
  • Buy high-quality tile and lay it yourself (it’s easier than you think!)

Finally, consider replacing old carpet with pre-cut carpet squares in your home’s most popular rooms. Remember that installing wall-to-wall carpet in a complicated room will be difficult to cut and install. If carpeting is what you want and you think you can’t do it yourself, hire a local home remodeler.

Other affordable options, such as hardwood flooring or luxury vinyl plank, may surprise you.

Freshen Up The Walls

Never underestimate the impact a new coat of paint can have on a Cypress, TX, property. A fresh coat of paint can work wonders when it comes to updating your home or redoing an investment property to sell later.

Light and neutral colors, such as tan or gray, tend to make rooms look larger. People don’t like wild and bright colors, so stick with light and neutral colors if you don’t plan to live there. Avoid white at all costs, and do your homework to find great paint at a great price.

Don’t have the time or desire to do your painting? No worries. You can always contact us for a free at-home design estimate.

Install A Medicine Cabinet

A simple medicine cabinet can add style and storage to a bathroom. Simply replace the boring wall-mount mirror with an open wall space in the bathroom.

Are you not a fan of installing an old-fashioned medicine cabinet? Consider mounting small containers to the back of your bathroom door to store small beauty and grooming products. You can also include a magnetic memo board or whiteboard for daily affirmations.

As part of your bathroom remodel, you can add thin shelves to the walls or buy off-the-shelf storage options like tiered carts, ladders that lean, or apothecary cabinets for a more rustic look.

Replace Light Fixtures

There’s no denying that you or your homebuyers will spend a lot of time looking at light fixtures. That is why replacing light fixtures is a simple, inexpensive, and effective way to renovate your home.

Most rooms have out-of-date lighting. When it comes to home renovations, it appears that many investors who flip properties and homeowners do not consider replacing this. On the other hand, the right light fixture can make a home look more inviting, modern, and stylish. They also don’t have to be the most expensive on the market.

Make Your Space Bigger

Although this may be a larger project than most people want to tackle, opening up space within your home can be a cost-effective home renovation idea that makes everything seem brand new.

The key to removing a wall in your Cypress, TX, home is to ensure that the wall in question is not a load-bearing one. If it is, your cost-effective project will become very expensive and necessitate a professional’s services. However, if the wall is not critical to the overall structure of your home, it is safe to remove it.

Upgrade The Front Door

People form their first impression within 38 seconds of entering your home or property. In other words, they’ve decided whether they like what they see when they walk up to and through your front door.

A home sale can be made or broken by this.

One of the most cost-effective ways to renovate your home is to replace the front door. By doing so, you create a modern-looking and inviting entryway for visitors. You can replace the entire thing or simply paint it a different color. Either way, it will increase curb appeal and make people feel more welcome.

Install Crown Molding

When you add crown molding to a room, you can easily and affordably transform it from ordinary to extraordinary. Adding a beautiful trim to any room is simple and only requires a few supplies and wood or plaster molding. And it makes it look a hundred times better.

Crown molding makes the space between the wall and the ceiling look better. Also, it draws your attention to the ceiling, making the room look higher.
